Re: Wippee Friday night game! PRC fixtures

By motorcycle is a good way to go, amble via back road scenery and then parking at the ground is free.
Of course winter games are not so amenable.

Re: Forward passes and putting the ball in

Offside at kick off - there is a line on the pitch for heavens sake
Penalty kicks ( from hand ) taken far in advance of the mark
- shouldn't that be a scrum to the opposition ?
Apply that one and see how quickly it dies out.

Re: If you support a club.....

A colleague and friend has supported Middlesborough FC for 60+ years and his son is now also a fan.
It's more than results and League position.
It's heart, hope and love.

Re: The Tigers Team That Never Was

I think Vunibaka did sign for us but was refused a work visa as he was not an international ( sevens not being counted )
So we only got Serevi who had a mixed time.
I suspect they were a package and we actually wanted Marika more than Serevi.

Europe Head High

Having watched the games so far I have seen real high tackles, over the shoulder, intentional contact with the head, accidental contact with the head and probable contact. Until our game there wasn't a penalty given let alone a yellow card. Commentators said more than once how Premiership it would b...

Re: Online Tickets

Dear Mr Beat,
Unfortunately it is a technical issue as the ticket office informed me on Friday and today, I was just hoping there might have been more information available than try again.

Re: Spencer banned for four weeks

Not wanting to stir at all ( much ) but the consistence point is huge The clearly visible forearm ( Gaskell ? ) to head was ignored as was the offside at kick off - even bad enough for the commentators to point out - this led to pressure and arguably a poor clearance and then points for Wasps in a t...

Re: Tigers has done Manu a disservice - George Ford

I'm not sure that it wasn't England that first started using Manu as an almost exclusively crash ball player. When he started for Tigers ( Tigers v S. Africa ? ) and in early games he was often given the ball ( usually fromA Allen ) into a gap or after a half break so again in room. His power was th...

Re: Tigers vs Racing

Re attendance, I'm 75 miles away and it's snowing so I stayed home.
Given a top of table decider I would have been there without a doubt.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2017/18 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2!!

I used the term chop tackle as shorthand for no arms battering ram style aimed at the joint. Not a legitimate way to tackle and known to cause injury.
Often from the side or behind.
I have no complaint about any proper tackling.
